PCTEL’s solution for accurate testing of 5G dual polarization beamforming is available now!

Dual polarization beamforming techniques are widely deployed on 5G networks worldwide, but they pose a challenge for traditional drive and walk test systems. The PCTEL solution features a specially designed horizontally polarized antenna and new signal processing techniques that enable PCTEL® scanning receivers to capture dual polarized signals in a manner similar to a mobile phone, while maintaining the accuracy and performance of a purpose-built scanner. Best of all, you can use your existing PCTEL HBflex™( PCTEL OP710 HBflex Dual Polarization-Ericsson 2.5-6 GHz BS 5G NR firmware upgrade option) or PCTEL IBflex® (OP706 IBflex Dual Polarization-Ericsson 2.5-6 GHz BS 5G NR firmware upgrade option) scanning receiver for dual polarization beamforming testing. See the copy of the latest PCTEL Scanner Antenna Brochure which…

VINATech have launched a new ground breaking range of 85 Degree C EDLC Super capacitors

VINATech have launched a new ground breaking range of 85 Degree C RATED EDLCs The VET series of +85c Single cell 2.7v EDLC capacitors and 5.4v modules was launched in Paris last week. This is probably the first genuine +85c Radial Pulse Capacitor series that has been longed for by Engineers from all Industry sectors across the globe wanting a genuine +85c range. The limitation to higher temperatures has in the past been the Electrolyte used by EDLC Manufacturers but now the R&D Team at VINATech have developed a new solution which will be particularly ideal for all IoT and AMI applications. Until recently, managing high temperatures was managed by de-rating actual working voltage of standard +65c EDLC types, however the…
